My own little garden

As part of the internship, we each get to practice the techniques we are learning on our own little garden plots. To prepare the bed, I pulled the weeds, turned the soil, and used a fair amount of Bokashi Compost and charcoal mixed in. Then I transplanted kale, tomatoes, and peppers, and covered these with rice straw mulch. Then I also sowed mustard greens, radishes and corn from seed. I also planted morning glory from bits of other ones around the property and gave them simply cow dung over top. I'll add pictures to this post as the garden grows... So far so good!
